It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!

Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join them!

Well I hope you all had a very happy Christmas. As I sit here Monday morning I am feeling rather pleasantly tired and not quite ready to get very active today!

My reading week was a little slow although my listening helped to add to the books read.  And so we farewell 2016 year of reading. May 2017 bring many great books to read for us all.

  1. I am eager to start reading for the Read the Books You Buy Challenge...I really enjoyed it this past year.

    The Other Daughter looks like one I might buy. Enjoy the rest of 2016!

  2. I think I too need to get into the Read the Books You Buy challenge in 2017. At least I worked today which stopped me buying books!

  3. What would we do without audiobooks!

  4. Count me among the pleasantly tired today :) I'm looking forward to a day of relaxing with my book. I'll watch for your thoughts on The Other Daughter.

  5. Happy Christmas to you, too, Kathryn! I, thankfully, have the day off from work today; I feel tired, too! I think I may have had a bit too much sugar - ha! Thanks so much for hosting the linkup and I hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. The Other Daughter looks good! I hope you have a restful week of great reading. I'm nursing a cold and it's what I plan to do but with two teens in the house...we'll see if that happens.:-)

  7. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of The Other Daughter. I really enjoyed it and the wardrobe descriptions practically made my mouth water. I'm looking forward to reading Because of Miss Bridgerton! I've been in a reread mood lately and have been reaching for historical romances for the first time in awhile. I reread The Duke and I and loved it. Now I want to reread all the Bridgertons!

  8. Hard to believe it is the end of 2016 already, isn't it?

    Glad you had a nice Christmas pleasantly tired sounds nice - I am a little more on the exhausted/wiped out end this morning!

    Enjoy this last week of 2016 & your books!

  9. My reading last week was slow too, with trying to get everything done for Christmas. Now today, we're snowed in! We are supposed to get 50 cm by the end of this blizzard. I hope you enjoy your last week of 2016 with some good books. I'm going to listen to my audiobook while I shovel snow, LOL!

  10. I hope you enjoy your reading this coming week and get to do lots of it.

  11. Merry Christmas! I'm also feeling not very active today, but I think we all are after Christmas!

  12. It sounds like you had a good holiday and get to relax now that the Christmas rush is over. One podcasting knitter, Little Bobbins Knits, hosts a Christmas Even Cast On every year. I jumped in to participate. Thought of you and Wei as I dug out my ball of Zealana Cozi to cast on my first ever possum mixed yarn. How wonderfully dense my ribbing is coming out. How toasty my foot would be in wet, windy weather. The color is kale.

  13. That's a lot of great reads you got there! I need to check these books out!

  14. I am a day off with Christmas falling on a Sunday. It wasn't until just now that I realized that I didn't post yet! Glad you had a nice day and hope this week is filled with what is relaxing.

  15. Some great choices Kathryn. I'm on my last March review for RT :)

  16. I'm not back to blogging yet, but it's fun to read all the links listed above. Some good choices you made in your recent books, and I'm jotting a couple down. I hope to be back-- excited for posting-- next week!

  17. Nice week.

    The Other Daughter looks very good.

    I hope you are having a good week.

    My It's Monday, What Are You Reading

  18. I see I'm very late at it, but this last week at work was absolutely tiring, you know, with the inventory (how I hate it!) and all.
    But I still managed to finished 'Wouldn't be Deadly', a nice cosy mystery set in 1910s London (I won't have a link to add for at least a week more) and made some intersting progress on a book about WWI (research for a story of mine).
    All considered, not too bed.

    Hey, I see a 1920s story on your list! I've seen that book around and since I'm always interested in 1920s stories: is it any good?

    1. While I was reading it I was feeling a bit blah so it didn't make my top list. As I don't really know your reading tastes yet, I'd say I am not sure if you'd like it. But definitely the world of the wealthy in the 1920's with things to hide.
